This is ridiculous! I have gotten this the last two days:
Your InfinityFree account epiz_28903129 (Website for quilterchic.com) has been temporarily suspended.
Your account exceeded the daily limits of your service. InfinityFree monitors the CPU, memory and hits usage (among others) of your account and temporarily deactivates your website if the limit is hit.
Your account will be reactivated automatically after 24 hours. For more information about why your account is suspended, check the client area.
On June 30th I was working a lot on the site, so maybe it could have gone over that day, but there’s no way there is enough traffic for it to go down again today. I don’t even know what to do about this.
So stupid. Just so you can try to get a paid account. Please advise.
DDoS is a crime. IF is not a scam, and provides reliable hosting. IF is not DDoSing your site. You probably have too many visitors, or files. Please try removing some files, or blockings bots from your site.
Bots. There are many bots that could have entered your site, from Google, Bing, MS, and even private ones searching for sites to hack or spam. Each one can count as multiple visitors if they keep refreshing your page.
Might be your files than. If your files require a lot of server power, a single visitor (you) can use a lot of power, and suspend you pretty quickly. If you have server heavy files, you will need a paid host.
Note that the site does not in suspend as soon as you get the email. The email just means your site is read to get in suspended, not that it actually did. Just wait a bit, and it will come back.
Perhaps you can help me to know what to do next. I’ve been off for a few days, and I noticed that on July 3rd it came back online at 4:23pm, back off at 5:08pm. On the 4th, off at 6:23pm, band on at 7:09pm. Yesterday I never got notice it came back online, but went off at 9:11pm.
I don’t even know which files would be causing a problem to delete them. How can I work on the site without being able to get to the dashboard?
It could also very well be certain softwares, apps, or plug-ins you have installed on your site. Some softwares, such as WordPress, are well known here for using enough CPU resources to make your site get suspended even if you receive little to no traffic.
Seeing how you’re using Cloudflare, one stop-gap measure could be to enable “I’m under attack” mode on your website. That should stop bad traffic from hitting your website and may keep your site online.
I put blocks on cloudflare for certain countries, a well as “I’m under attack” mode, and the site only stayed up for a little over an hour after coming back online.
I’d like to work on the site to force visitors to https: but I can’t keep it online long enough to do anything.
I am very frustrated. About ready to give up.
